I think I would really truly miss the smell of the occasional piece of warm French bread if it weren't for a gluten-free baguette I buy at Whole Foods (I think the brand is Against the Grain?) It makes the best garlic bread! It's a little eggier than most baguettes, but I actually prefer that.

That bread alone has saved me from missing anything bread-like. Even my non-gluten-free housemate likes it just fine.

Now if a perfect pasta would just come along...

ps. (don't get me wrong, there are plenty gluten-free versions I enjoy, but none matches a real semolina)

I can't stand the rice pasta, it's just not the same texture - but I find that the corn pasta is good, found at Trader Joes. Still searching for a good bread, Udis, Rudis, tapioca bread, yuck.

Against the Grain baguettes are like food crack.......once you have them, it's tough to not buy them. I think it is the best gluten-free French-type bread out there. It is delicious grilled and used to make bruschetta.

food crack :lol: indeed

I make crostini out of them. Cut them into 1 inch rounds on the diagonal, brush them with garlic /herbed EVOO and lightly broil quickly. 1-2 minutes.

Then, let them cool.

Slather them with some goat cheese and a dollop of marinated roasted peppers (make these beforehand---use yellow, red and green grilled or broiled peppers that have been seeded and cut into strips and marinated in some balsamic vinegar, EVOO, thyme, basil and oregano for a few hours--and placed in the fridge)

and you have a taste treat to die for.

The people who make toast? ..............will come over to your cubicle to see what smells so good.....!

LOL! This thread is like food porn :D

I'm traveling in China for work this week and I must say it's interesting ... they don't have a lot of processed foods here so I "think" I'm pretty safe. I'm sticking to veggies and meats... they do have awesome fresh fruits so I fill up at breakfast. One thing I noticed was they keep the cooked bacon on top of sliced bread. I could not for the life of me figure out why, but then I realized they are using the bread to soak up the grease. Sadly, this also means no bacon for Cory :(

I also brought some Lara bars and gluten-free pretzels to tide me over :D Every place I've eaten has been very accommodating when I ask for no sauces but they have no clue what gluten is...

HAHAHA!!!

Sometimes I go all out and roast garlic bulbs and let them cool and spread the soft

garlic with oil and melted butter all over the baguette before I lightly toast it.....

So, off to the store on the morrow!

Ohhhhhhh......that is so yummy! Looks like I'll be buying baguettes this week-end! :lol:

Have a good trip! I always wondered how easy it would be to eat gluten free in Asia, so you'll have to let us know more. What about the soy sauce or do they not use a lot of that? Dedicated woks? I haven't had Chinese food in years. The one place that has a gluten-free menu, P.F. Changs, does not have very good food, IMO. So I go without. Not the same as real Chinese food, either.

Gemini, I have AWESOME Chinese recipes if you are interested. They are authentic and taste as good or BETTER than eating out. Honest. Trust me!

Accidentally glutened myself last night at dinner. Had beef with "sauce" duuuhhhhhhhhhhh but only minor issues today. It was an interesting evening talking with my Asia co-workers on gluten issues :D Rather difficult to explain but I think I got the point across....

Traveling home tomorrow, it's been a really good trip and only 1 minor glutening... I call that a success!
